Storyline

Simon dreams of finding his one true love. Until then, he spends most of his time watching sloppy tearjerkers on video. He also shies away from the shallow young women that he and his friends Micke and Mario meet at bars. But Micke suggests one thing that is a guaranteed babe-magnet: taking a dog out for walks. It's an instant success for Simon, he meets the delightful Mia who immediately takes a liking to him. But things are not always what they may look like. Written by Mattias Thuresson

Finally, Sweden!
3 September 2005 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

This is a very interesting movie because it's Swedish, I've seen a lot of romantic comedies and Hundtricket is one of the better, that was not patriotic :-).

The movie works really well thanks to Alexander Skarsgård, A talented actor, son to Stellan Skarsgård and can also be seen in Zoolander. He plays Micke, a real player since his real love cheated on him. His friend Simon is also a good addiction to this movie with his silliness, A male who really loves Pretty Woman (the movie).

You can also see a lot of great scenes who can match up with many chick flicks in the states. You won't regret seeing this movie.

7/10
